Growing Bookworms Newsletter: June 10, 2008

Jpg_book009This evening I will be sending out the new issue of the Growing Bookworms weekly email newsletter. (If you would like to subscribe, you can find a sign-up form here.) The Growing Bookworms newsletter contains content from my blog focused on children's books and raising readers. There are currently more than 280 subscribers.

This week I have two reviews of young adult titles (one light-hearted, and one more serious), a children's literacy and reading news round-up, two Kidlitosphere round-ups with links to useful posts from the past week, and an edition of my reviews that made me want the book feature. I also have my round-up post from this past weekend's 48 Hour Book Challenge (a contest to read and blog as much as possible over a 48-hour period), with links to 11 additional reviews. Recent posts not included in this newsletter include:

  • A meme about my summer goals.
  • A post about a book that I recently reviewed that's now available for purchase (I Shall Not Want, by Julia Spencer-Fleming).
  • Eleven posts with reviews from the 48 Hour Book Challenge, plus my launch post. These reviews are linked below, in my Book Challenge Wrap-Up post.

This should be enough reviews for anyone. Hope that you find them useful. Thanks for reading, and for growing bookworms!
